Urgent Care opens at 505 Congress Street

September 6, 2022

An exciting new medical service launched on September 6th as South Boston Health Seaport reopened as an Urgent Care center at 505 Congress Street.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer these services to people who live in, work in or visit the South Boston Seaport” said Bill Halpin, CEO of South Boston Community Health Center. “Everything we do is patient centered. This new urgent care center allows patients to walk-in and receive high quality, compassionate and timely professional medical care.”

The new urgent care center, part of South Boston Community Health Center family,  is staffed with medical providers who can see both adults and children and can treat a broad range of non-life- threatening conditions. Walk-in treatment is available for everyday illness and injury – from sore throats to UTIs, allergies to earaches, sprains and strains. 

The center is open Monday – Thursday from 10:30 AM – 7:00 PM. Those wishing to make a same-day appointment can do so by visiting the website at www.seaporturgentcare.org or by calling 617-464-7620. South Boston Health Seaport Urgent Care accepts nearly all major insurance plans and will never turn a patient away if they are unable to afford essential services. They offer discounts on services based on family size and family income levels. 

Patients visiting this urgent care location will be able to easily access their electronic health record through MyChart and those without a primary care provider will be offered the opportunity to be connected with one.  “If a patient needs help accessing primary care in the community, we can make an appointment for them at our West Broadway site before they even walk out the door” said Dr. Nisha Thakrar, Chief Medical Officer. “We want to ensure that our patients are not only getting the urgent care they need but also are able to gain access and follow-up with a primary care provider”.

What You're Saying

“I feel that it is a well-oiled machine, with Dr. Brout at South Boston. I just can't say enough good things! They know why I am there without a computer, since everybody knows what is going on with me, all staff. Everybody is on the same page, for a level of healthcare I had never experienced.”

“The staff in the lab, Verinta or "V," is amazing. My son was literally giddy with delight at her joking and playfulness. He was actually so happy with her, he didn't react to the blood draw, but then cried outside a tiny bit with a delayed reaction like "hey, wait, that hurt." She is an absolutely phenomenal addition to the phlebotomy team! Overall, a great experience.”

“Dr. Kane always asks me if I understand everything and whether or not I need further clarification... I really appreciate him explaining everything so in depth.”
Eye Care Patient 2018
“There’s an emphasis on education here. Dr. Chiakpo and Marianna (a nurse in training) provided a lot of background concerning my issue and even brought in diagrams, which I greatly appreciated, since I’m a visual learner. They both gave me space to ask questions on everything. I really appreciated the time they spent with me.”

“I truly enjoyed the sweetness of Dr. Biffi. She was very detailed in her explanations, and thoroughly checked and re-checked everything. She really impressed me.The assistant was also very good, dedicated, and professional.”

“My ride was late, but Dr. Green waited an hour for me. When I got there, she took me right in, so that was very nice. She gave me a prescription; she actually brought the prescription all the way outside to give it to me, since I had forgotten it. She is excellent! Everyone is very nice and very understanding. I really liked the center; everyone was very cordial to me.””
